Today is going to be a big day. At 11am I will meet with the structural engineer, which should address our concerns for the overall safety of the house. I've been informed he will do that and determine whether the current plan for the ceiling/roof is appropriate. I'm an definitely anxious going into this meeting and had dreams last night that foundation issues were found and they decided the entire house needs to be rebuilt. So I guess anything short of that today won't sound so bad!
I did stop by the bank on Tuesday to deposit the first check from the insurance company. Of course, nothing can be done simply and I have to go in and get the check signed by the bank before signing since it is made out to us and the bank (mortgage holder). They remembered us from when we took out the heloc to do the roof. After years of never being in a bank, it's weird but cool to be recognized. Looks like we'll be in there more to deposit other insurance checks. Received the check for the tree company yesterday.
And beyond all of this house stuff, of course life continues forward. I have a job interview at 1:30 this afternoon. It's for my same company and would continue to be from home. So we'll see how it goes. I'm glad it's after I meet with the structural engineer, in case we do find out that repairs will take significantly longer than we were originally told.
Dear God, give me the wisdom to say the right things during today's interview. Give the structural engineer the wisdom to see any damages to our home to ensure all necessary repairs are scheduled for completion. Help all of us to manage this situation as best as possible. I know that this will be used for our good, but I'm just not sure how at this point. Help us to see the good in a tough situation.
Ready to tackle this long day!
